Mamnick x Banton Frameworks

July 7, 2016

I haven’t posted for ages. Mainly because there’s been a real dearth of stuff that’s caught my interest. Plus I’ve been crackers busy with work and kids and stuff. Anyway, I digress. Here’s something I think is mega – the latest product from friends of the blog, Mamnick and their collaboration with Banton Frameworks. A beautifully designed and produced pair on sunglasses, limited to only 50 pairs, all of which are carefully handmade in Banton Frameworks’ studio.

The sunglasses are made from precision machined, premium Italian acetate, in a lovely shade of amber. Stainless steel rivets and five-barrel stainless steel hinges attach the ‘hockey-end’ arms to the frame, whilst titanium nose pads poise the frame perfectly on your face. Each pair is completely unique, depending on where it’s cut from the acetate sheet and to keep things as simple and clutter-free as possible, the frame has no outer branding at all.

Protection comes in the form of a leather case, produced in Somerset from two pieces of black calf leather, stitched back-to-back. Fastening is via a simple, manually riveted stainless steel ‘Sam Brown’ button and the case is finished with the Banton Frameworks brand tag and Mamnick’s championship bands. Finally everything arrives in a cracking presentation box, crafted from chord embossed G.F Smith colourplan stock with some lovely gloss black foil blocking.

The glasses are available now. So if you fancy a pair, go to the website here: Mamnick x Banton Frameworks.
